We had just lived through one of the biggest years of our life, and had only been home 6 months from an international adoption! We did NOT have plans to sell our house! But one day Ashley called and said, “I have a crazy idea.” She suggested we could take advantage of the crazy seller’s market and sell at the highest price possible. This appealed to us because there were things we didn’t love about our house and we knew it wasn’t going to last our family long. We wanted to find something that we all really loved! We decided that if we could walk away with a particular profit, then we would do it.
I completely trust Ashley because she knows what she is doing, not just because she is one of my closest friends. We followed her crazy advice and listed our home aggressively. It SOLD in 2 days for $36k over the already insane list price!*
But then we entered the unfavorable market as buyers, moved our family of 6 in with my mom and tried to wait patiently for the right home! After writing 2 offers that were not accepted, we took more insane advice of Ashley’s to write an offer SIGHT UNSEEN for OVER list price. If we hadn’t completely trusted Ashley, we would never have taken that leap of faith! What’s even crazier, is that we are living in that beautiful home! It’s ours! I have never been more nervous than the Monday morning we were walking in to see it for the first time. One step in, and it surpassed everything I could have hoped for.
